Welcome to the homepage of the German Society for Protozoology

Protozoologie umfasst alle Aspekte im Zusammenhang mit Protisten. Protisten sind in der Regel eukaryotische einzelligen Organismen. Die meisten Protisten sind mikroskopisch und koexistieren mit anderen Mikroorganismen - wie Bakterien - in den meisten Ökosystemen der Erde und leisten einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Funktionsweise der Systeme. Zum Beispiel sind in den meisten aquatische Ökosystemen photosynthetische Mikroalgen die Basis des Nahrungsnetzes; heterotrophe Protisten mit Tier-ähnlicher Ernährungsweise dienen als wichtiges Glied in der Energieübertragung in Systemen, wie als Räuber von Bakterien und gleichzeitig als Beute von größeren Organismen. Protisten können auch drastische Veränderungen in Ökosystemen hervorrufen, zum Beispiel durch schädliche giftige Algenblüten in den Ozeanen und das hervorrufen von menschlichen Krankheiten, einschließlich Malaria, Afrikanische Schlafkrankheit, und Amöbenruhr.

 

Protozoology encompasses all aspects related to protists, which are eukaryotic and usually unicellular organisms. Most protists are microscopic, coexisting with other microorganisms – like bacteria – within most ecosystems on Earth and vitally contributing to their functioning. For example, photosynthetic microalgae constitute the base of the food web in most aquatic ecosystems and heterotrophic protists, those with animal-like nutrition, serve as a vital link in the transfer of energy within systems, as predators of bacteria and as prey to larger organisms. Protists can also drastically alter ecosystems, for example through harmful toxic blooms in the oceans, and cause human disease, including malaria, African sleeping sickness, and amoebic dysentery.

Einzeller des Jahres 2017

 

Zum Einzeller des Jahres 2017 wurde der Choanoflagellat Diaphanoeca grandis gewählt. Der letzte gemeinsame Vorfahre von Einzellern (Protisten) und Tieren war ein Choanoflagellaten ähnlicher Protist. Wegen ihrer Verwandtschaft zu den Tieren und der Fähigkeit Kolonien zu bilden, stehen Choanoflagellaten im Fokus der Evolutionsforschung – insbesondere hinsichtlich der Entstehung der Mehrzelligkeit.

Annual meeting of the German Society for Protozoology 2017

 

The 36th annual meeting of the German Society for Protozoology will take place on February 21st-24th 2017 in Meißen, Saxony, Germany. The meeting will be hosted by the Chair of Limnology (Aquatic Ecology) of the Institute of Hydrobiology, TU Dresden and will cover a broad range of research topics within the large field of protozoology. Thus, it will provide a platform for researchers from a variety of disciplines such as protist taxonomy, cell biology, ecology and evolution as well as parasitology, epigenetics and phylogenomics.

Dr. habil. Wilfried Schönborn (1934–2016)

Wilfried Schönborn was the editor-in-chief of Limnologica for twelve years and passed away in Jena shortly after his 82nd birthday. His broad interest ranged from single-celled organisms to birds and mammals, from basic research to applied research topics. With his inexhaustible knowledge he awakened broad interest for the ecology of waters
